Album is a new way of sorting and arranging your photos – a big selling point of the Xperia S given the excellent camera packed into the phone. The Movies app will, according to Sony, streamline the playback of movies and video in high quality.

The total upgrade package will be around 200MB to download and will be available over the next couple of weeks.
